Not long ago, a British woman named Amber Monte moved into a new home with her beloved dog, a golden retriever named Lola. The new owners of the house were immediately greeted by the neighbor’s dog, who was interested in the new doggie roommate.
The neighbor’s Staffordshire terrier named Loki and Lola hit it off right away. Even though they were separated by a wooden fence, the pair still instantly found common ground. They were always jumping on the fence, leaning on their paws, looking out, and calling out to each other.
“We’ve never lived next to other dogs before, and Lola was so excited to see another dog so often!” Monte told The Dodo. “When Loki was in his garden he’d always jump up at the fence and look for Lola, as he knew she was usually there.”
At first the owners thought the dogs were just friends – but then Lola’s owner began to notice changes in the dog’s behavior. Lola whimpered constantly, looking in the direction of Loki’s house, and often asked to be let out into the yard. It was clear that she had become attached to Loki, and missed him very much.
“A few times the past month we’ve actually come out to see Loki in our garden and them both playing around together,” Monte said. “Now, usually in the mornings when we go to let Lola out, Loki is sat waiting in our garden for her!”
The first thing Lola did in the morning was to run to the fence to see if Loki was there and say hello to him, or vice versa, Loki did. Since then the owners started going for walks together, and the dogs were overjoyed. They love spending time together!
“They are so excited to see each other when they play — there’s lots of jumping around, running, lots of kissing!” Monte said. “They are inseparable when they are together.”
